Last week I gave a presentation at a local University, and as I was leaving, the Professor gave me a gift card from an online bookseller. I promptly went online and ordered Big Coal: The Dirty Secret Behind America's Energy Future by Jeff Goodell and An Inconvenient Truth by Al Gore. Both books were purchased used - and arrived in yesterday's mail.
I started reading Big Coal last night, and have been sucked in pretty good. If you'd like to read the introduction of this book online, you can do so here.
Since the book has me in its grip, I'll probably carry it with me this weekend during a backpacking trip along the Fires Creek Rim Trail in Western North Carolina. I don't often carry a hardcover book while I'm backpacking, but I'll make an exception for Big Coal.
